Fun book for 1st to 3rd grade girls. Franny is smart but not as smart as she thinks and that gets her into trouble But it did not ring as true to how kids really act as I had hoped. Kids will like it but I am not driven to read the rest of the series.

I like Frannie (or Frankly as she decides to call herself). She wants to be grown up so badly, she tends to make some colossal mistakes in her efforts to become one. You'll see what I mean if you read this book. It is a lot of fun. It is a "scientific fact" that you will enjoy reading this book. It is worth it for the style of the writing alone. The author loves to use different fonts for different ideas. And it's a quick read. I read it in half an hour. No age restrictions.

Frannie is a girl who desperately wants to be a grown up. So desperate that she is trying to make herself like mustard by smelling it. Frannie is famous for her imagination getting the better of her, so much so that when the class is to go on a field trip to a radio station, she gets a special buddy to watch her. This doesn't stop Frannie from finding more trouble.

Very sweet first chapter book about a girl who finds trouble even when she isn't looking for it. Accompanied by cartoon illustrations by Doreen Mulryan Marts, Frankly, Frannie manages to have a believable heroine who suffers realistic consequences from her choices. Slight suspension of disbelief when it comes to the scrapes she gets into, but still an enjoyable book.

We read the entire series aloud to our 5 year old. Enjoyed just as much by us as it was by our child.
